Hi [VT member 93f85],
Im looking for a small apartment with 2 bed rooms in Paris just fo few days.
I think i prefer to stay in Monmartre area but i'd look on other recommendations as well.
I really want something with Parisian sense... nothing very expensive just some real Parisian feel... (not a real touristy hotels).
Any recommendations please ?
Have a look at airbnb.com. They rent flats. I used them for a summer vacation rental in the US, and everything went swimmingly, so to speak.
For apartments in Paris we have used welcome2france.com and they have some great places. A little expensive, but great locations. If you do an apartment, make sure there is not construction going on by the unit or in front of the building. Karl
Thanks a lot guys.
I may need a small hotel... anyone ?
Pretty few recommendations for a such forum... :)
perhaps VRBO.com or rent villas.com have some small apartment type palces for rent...that is where I'll begin my search too.
I wish I had known about this before I got a hotel room in Ecole Militaire, around the corner from Musee Rodin. Shall I take that quick tour of the sewers at Pont d'Alma?
Try it and let me know - it might be an extraordinary smelly experience.
They say it's very short -- only 500 yards, or 550 meters.
Perfume might be the answer
Sorry; I never touch the stuff!
If you look for an apartment with 2 bedrooms, a good idea is homestay in Paris.
Last year I have used the services of this website: http://www.homestay-in-paris.com
They could find very quickly a nice host family ( it was a big apartment close to Montparnasse station, with 2 bedrooms for me , my wife and children ).
I'm going to the Musee des'Egoutes today, as a matter of fact. Where I'm staying, in Ecole Militaire is very close to Pontiac l'alma.
Yah, I did type PONT Alma, not realizing that the Autocorrect feature "corrected" it for me.
The Sewer was interesting indeed. Would have been an educational experience, for non Euros like me, if they at least had SOME of the signage in English... But I forget that Europe is not a pluralist society, like ours; it's homogeneous, not heterogeneous. I can count, on the fingers of two hands, the number of nonwhite people I've seen in Paris for the last 3 days. I suppose I'd have to go way out, to the slums in the suburbs, to see people of color. I remember those riots just a few years ago.
